Virginia License Plate – Design Finalists!
The Appalachian Trail Conservancy and the Virginia DMV have come with with three designs for the new specialty plate. The ATC is conducting a survey on the designs. You can vote for your favorite here.
I like that McAfee’s Knob clearly made it in two of the three designs. If you go by the image name, the last design was apparently inspired by Mount Rogers. That was not obvious to me.
My favorite is Option A. I love that it is McAfee’s Knob. I like the slight green of the landscape. The logo on the right is reminiscent of the old metal blazes used for the AT. And– I find the hiker’s raised arms an extremely accurate representation of how you feel the very first time you make it up the to that view.
Polls on the plate design stay open until 5 PM on May 14th. The winning design will be announced at Trail Days in Damascus on May 16th. You could not get more fitting than that!
